Linda Lander: Daniel Gordon’s “leadership has been critical in attempts to improve neighborhoods in Ward 1”

Daniel Gordon is seeking re-election as the Ward 1 representative to the Bowling Green City Council. His outstanding record of leadership qualifies him to be the only choice for that elected position.

Leadership, commitment to neighborhood revitalization, and dedication to equality and social justice have been hallmarks of Daniel’s work on City Council. He has blended these characteristics in supporting numerous projects to improve the quality of life for all Bowling Green citizens.

Daniel’s leadership has been critical in attempts to improve neighborhoods in Ward 1. Central to a quality neighborhood are community resources, including green spaces where families and individuals can gather and participate in recreational activities. One of Daniel’s signature neighborhood developments is Ridge Park, the first public park in the history of the First Ward. He is eager to create another recreational area for children and families in the northeastern part of Bowling Green. Daniel has supported the Complete Streets program which provides safe transportation options for citizens. It is Daniel’s strong sense of equality that drives his efforts to ensure that all citizens in Bowling Green have equal access to city resources and safe transportation.

Bowling Green has a need for appealing neighborhoods and quality housing in Ward 1 and throughout the city of Bowling Green. Sixty percent of housing in Bowling Green is rental property. It is important for a community to have an appropriate mix of housing options, particularly to attract new homeowners and families. We want Bowling Green to be a city where all members of the community are afforded quality housing.

In addition to neighborhood improvement, Daniel’s leadership has been instrumental in the passage of City Council resolutions to make Bowling Green a welcoming, safe and inclusive community. He has worked with City Council, the Human Relations Commission, community organizations, and citizens to make Bowling Green a city in which all community members feel safe and accepted.

In community gatherings, Daniel Gordon can always be counted on for his delivery of a well-prepared, eloquent speech that promotes the essential values of equality and social justice. His dedication is a beacon of hope for the Bowling Green community.

I am proud to support Daniel Gordon as the 1st Ward representative to the City Council. Daniel has the leadership, commitment, and dedication to serve the interests of Ward I residents and all citizens of Bowling Green.
